Tiger Woods will get his first chance at setting the all-time record for PGA Tour wins when he tees it up at the Farmers Insurance Open. Woods has committed to play this year’s tournament, scheduled for Jan. 22-26 at Torrey Pines Golf Course, the Century Club of San Diego announced on Jan. 9.

At 82 wins, Woods needs one more victory to move ahead of World Golf Hall of Famer Sam Snead as the PGA Tour’s all-time winningest golfer. Beginning his 2020 campaign at Torrey Pines, he’ll be chasing the record in a tournament he has won seven times and on a golf course where he owns eight professional wins.

Currently No. 7 in the Official World Golf Ranking, Woods enters 2020 riding an incredible wave of momentum over the last 16 months. After being limited by back injuries to just two tournaments in the span of more than two full calendar years, Woods broke a winless stretch of more than five years when he captured his 80th career victory at the 2018 Tour Championship. He followed that up by winning the 2019 Masters for his 15th major championship and his first major title since the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.

In October, Woods matched Snead’s all-time record of 82 career victories with his win at the ZOZO Championship near Tokyo, and his appearance at the Farmers Insurance Open will mark his first official PGA Tour start since then. He also led the United States team to a 16-14 victory in the Presidents Cup in December at Royal Melbourne Golf Club, serving as a playing-captain and winning all three of his matches.

“The fact that Tiger will have his first opportunity to set the all-time record for PGA Tour wins at the Farmers Insurance Open is truly fitting,” said Century Club of San Diego CEO Marty Gorsich. “Tiger has had such remarkable success here, dating back to his eighth career victory when he won this tournament for the first time in 1999. What he has done since returning from his back injuries has been great for the game of golf, and we are excited to welcome him back for a fourth consecutive year.”

Woods won the Farmers Insurance Open in 1999, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2013, and earned his 14th major championship victory in a 19-hole playoff at the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in 2008. In addition to his seven victories at the Farmers Insurance Open, the 82-time PGA Tour winner has finished in the top 10 six other times in 18 overall appearances. He is the tournament’s all-time leading money winner, with $6,995,504 earned.

Woods joins a strong list of early commitments that currently includes 16 of the top 50 players in the Official World Golf Rankings and 20 players among the top 30 in the 2019-20 PGA Tour FedExCup points standings. There are also nine past Farmers Insurance Open winners committed (including the last 10 straight), as well as 11 players who have accounted for 33 major championship victories. San Diego products committed to the Farmers Insurance Open include Rickie Fowler, Jamie Lovemark, Phil Mickelson, Pat Perez, Xander Schauffele and J.J. Spaun.

The field is not final until the commitment deadline on Friday, Jan. 17 at the conclusion of play in that week’s tournament.

. Despite all, he told me that he was no longer interested in marriage, I could not say what led to this cause, we never really had a serious fight that could lead to such a decision . I was so much worse that I could not continue. One afternoon I was at home talking online with a close friend and reading an article, and then seeing how a woman got married. It really struck me because I never thought it was possible, I thought and tried. I contacted the assistant who was doing all these miracles. When I did, I told him about everything I went through during my marriage, then he assured me to stop crying and should believe that my husband will change his mind in seven days. I did my best to believe it, so I did everything he asked me and after the last seven days, my husband came and ask me to forgive him that he wanted to meet us together and that is now over five years old. now we are a happy family. Am I really grateful for this help for what he has done for me I mean his kindness. Contact this great man by: {{whatsapp{{ {{ 17692085860}}}} :: {{lovetemple0001}} {{ @} {{gmail }} . {{ com}}
